episode 264: Standard Orbit 264: Ramping Up The Drama

High Drama of TOS and The Movies.

This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Hayley Stoddart talk the most dramatic moments of TOS and the movies. Conspiracies, death and destruction across all three eras of Captain Kirk's crew. What moments provided a punch to the gut or a hit to the feels when it was least expected?

Is the impact of Spock's death diminished by his resurrection? Which Enterprise's destruction carries the most weight? As much as we hated to lose Bruce Greenwood's Pike, was his death a necessary lynchpin for the rest of Star Trek Into Darkness? All this and more on this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
